HEALER'S SYNDROME – African traditional medicine against AIDS
“HEALER’S SYNDROME” – African traditional medicine against AIDS.
In Africa, with the boom of HIV through ancestral beliefs, self-proclaimed healers get rich on the backs of people with HIV.
Alerted by the fact that many African AIDS patients regularly consult healers, Dr. Moussa , ethnopsychiatrist twenty years in Paris, leads us to Benin, his country of origin, Niger and Senegal, to meet traditional healers.
The confusion between the real traditional healers who struggle against isolation and distress of patients faced with viruses and charlatans, fueling a real AIDS-business misleading and dangerous. Those discredit the real work of healing and the possibility for them to propose solutions drawn from ancient wisdom to fight against the scourge of AIDS.
